Episode 3x16 / Re: One Intense Trip

The transportation aspect of this episode strongly brings to mind the transportation 'side-effects' of the Philadeplhia Experiment.

Must be a quick sub to take Juliet there before the tranquilisers wear off  :D. Still they could have re-dosed her on route or had multiple forms of transport through the journey (there was a private airport on the Mittelos site).
However we all know the journey was somewhat out of this world, as alluded to by Richard before they departed.
Any suggestions as to the composition of methods of travel the journey took?

Episode 3x15 / Re: Smokie and the Fence/Does Smokey = Cerberus
« on: April 09, 2007, 10:34:26 AM »
Juliet confesed they knew about the smoke monster, but didn't know too much about it and it didn't like the fence. My thought is, if the losites were able to climb over the fence, why couldn't smokie?

Also 'Patchy' was able to pass through it whereas the Smoke wasn't, it was physically repelled/resisted. It would stand to reason that the more robust defense of the fence to the smoke monster is because it is geared to deal with that threat and it is simply repelled by it's physical properties when it gets close. And or maybe it doesn't have cognitive abilities.

Episode 3x15 / Re: Locke's Behavior!
« on: April 05, 2007, 02:19:11 PM »
Locke is was will always be a moron.  You can love him or hate him.  Hunter or Farmer?  I just see an egocentric loner whom has failed on numerous accounts in life.  If he is a man of faith than he converted to the Others religion.  He is manipulated over and over again.  He needed a father figure to kick him where the sun don't shine while growing up.  So, in return he got walked on his whole life.  (Soft)  So, he can go play GI Joe with the Others and fail. 

I agree with people claiming Locke looked beat up.  Maybe his Daddy-o and him duked it out.  It could have been revenge or
initiation to make a deal with the Others.  Eye for an Eye in Other's point of view. 

No more faith in Locke


Two of his biggest "failings" were donating a kidney to a conman father and being pushed out of a window resulting in paralysis- so your assessment of this character is a little harsh. He's had failures in life but not everyone can be Bill Gates  ;)  ;D
[wow.. I'm talking about them like they're real people   :o]

Juliet's excuse for hand-cuffiing herself to Kate is an elaborate lie. If she didn't want to be left alone she could have woken up Jack for a chat, they seem on quite reasonable terms.

We havent all been watching lost it's all been an experiment in mass hypnosis by abc. (parent company Hanso).

I heard a quite good general theory, and a better Losties theory at the end of their Expose episode analysis -

Let's go with Occam's Razor on this one and dispense with wild theories (though they're more fun).

Wild theories don't make me laugh this is LOST   ;)
As long as they have their own internal logic though based on sureal fantasy their ok   :D

At the end of the episode Ben is pushed in his chair, accompanied by Locke. They exit the door into a corridor turn right into another corridor, behind them on the wall as they turn you see the image of a cowering shadow. !!!
[appologies if this has already been mentioned]

Episode 3x13 / Re: Is the Dad real?
« on: March 23, 2007, 03:02:12 PM »
There is an old science fiction periodical, Analog, that once carried a story "E for Effort."  A couple of novel scientists stumbled upon an effect that would allow them to watch the past in real time.  They could play with it to go back to Alexander the Great, Lincoln, ect.  They used the images to make movies and hired actor voices to fill in dialogue. 

The producer scientists won a number of awards but then began to understand the ramifications of their work.  The made a last movie that showed the massive profiteering that went on behind closed doors in WWII america.  They additionally recognized that their invention could be dialed to the very immediate past and could therefore be used as the ultimate spy satellite.  The US government intervenes, but not before the scientists provide all of the governments of the world the plans for this device. 

Before their plan of equal access can be implemented, however, panic leads to conflict, and conflict leads to nuclear holocost.

The scientists had created a quantum window able to look across various realities.  The Others have such a device and have used it to learn the pasts of the survivors[/color].  The difference may be that the others are also able to insert themselves in these realities.

If so this means THE WHOLE THING from start to finish could have been planned. To what ends, if this is the case, we will only find out.

A supreme manipulator may well have the ability to put events on certain alternate courses to inorder to achieve certain alternate outcomes. If such a manipulator doesnot possess absolute power to control in this area, then maybe, hopefully, Desmond will have something to 'say' later on.

Episode 3x08 / Red Shoes
« on: February 21, 2007, 08:58:02 PM »
After the scaffolding/building falls on the man his red shoes are seen sticking out from the debris. Just like the wicked witch of the west had in the wizard of Oz when a house fell on her- This all turned out to be a dream/was all in Dorothy's mind. Is there a parallel to be drawn with desmond and is this all (or partly) in Desmond's mind, or similar, or is it a bluff/double bluff from the writers!!

... WALT had special abilities. He could make things happen - possibly change the course of things. Maybe we now know why the others wanted him so badly.

Hello,  newbie to posting but not LOST.

"No Matter What I Do, You're Going to Die, Charlie" - this is the phrase that Des uses when he realises no matter what he or anyone does the future is predestined and cannot be changed. However, may be there is some hope .... WALT.
